Blog Post – My Thoughts on Terrorism, Vegas Shootings and What We Can Do – Including a Channeled Message

I normally don’t like to speak out about events such as these, but my weekly reading last night saw this coming (https://carriegallop.wordpress.com/2017/10/02/weekly-angel-card-reading-week-of-october-1st-2017/), and I knew we were going to have even more to be talking about. I even received a small channeled message of guidance last night too, so I knew this was something I would need to talk about. The horrifying events unfolding this week, not to mention storms, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanos… It’s all becoming a little much, I will admit. What is going on in this world! Do unto others as you would like done unto you. Why must we hurt and kill each other. It’s absolutely devastating. I was shocked to wake up another incident in Las Vegas, after the events that unfolded in Edmonton over the weekend. I ask God why. What is the purpose of it all. In my perspective, it’s all a crazy way we are learning lessons in this lifetime. There was a lot of energy coming in around teaching. We are all learning from each other, and our experiences. It’s a reminder to hold compassion for all people, especially where you feel anger. Compassion and understanding. Not understanding what their issues are, but understanding that you don’t understand their issues. I pray for healing for everyone affected by these events. The truth of the matter, is that there is actually a lot wrong with our world and the way we are living… our food, chemicals, pollution, healthcare, overpopulation, consumption of resources, our monetary systems and our governance… there is something wrong with everything. Nothing is ever perfect, and never will be. Thinking about this, I find myself frustrated. What can we really do to change this? I realized the answer had already came to me yesterday evening, when I jotted down a message that was channeled to me, seemingly out of the blue. It is not something I do often. It was not part of a reading and was information that was important to write down. This was what I wrote down:

“One person… one idea… one small change… can change everything. Imagine one small change you can make in your life. Commit to it. (For example: Smile more at strangers. Be more compassionate when you are quick to judge. Be more mindful of breathing when you feel emotional. Eat healthier. Be more generous. Be more open when you feel shy. Pushing your boundaries where you feel fear. Be willing to forgive and let things go. Etc.) There are so many ways we can make small positive changes in our lives, and these small changes can have huge impacts and ripple effects. We can inspire and teach others. We can show them they are not alone. We can show them we are all worthy. We can show them healing is possible. All with one small choice to put yourself out there. All with one small choice to commit to bettering yourself. Positivity echos, so make sure to stay positive.”

All you can do is better yourself. It starts at home. It’s starts right here in our own hearts and our own choices. You CAN make the choice to make better decisions. You can clean up your life and be healthier. You can feel better. Reduce your own impact on our environment. Grow your own food. Consume less. Get some counselling. Make the decision and do what it takes. Let’s commit to having our minds and hearts in a good place, sharing love and happiness. Not buying into fear or terror. There will always be that one person who is going to come along and do something. Please, consider holding compassion for their faults and pain. Finding compassion when it’s the hardest is where true strength lies. Sending love and staying positive truly resonates, and if we all choose to do that, it’s so powerful and changes the world.

Love you all, Carrie

Monthly Angel Card Reading – September 2017

The crystals I am working with for this reading are Aquamarine, Scolosite and Prehnite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 

Aquamarine – A stone of courage and power. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love. It shields the aura, and is said to bring Angels for their guidance and protection. Used to dispel anger and fear. Used for past life recall. A stone of good luck. Helps with calming communication issues. Good for nervous system disorders. 

Scolosite – Promotes deep relaxation and inner peace. Helps to break through stagnant energy. A group harmonizer, connecting members and making them more tolerant of one another. Helps one to realize subtle messages from the inner self and from higher sources. It enhances the dream state, facilitating dream recall, lucid dreaming and restful sleep. 

Prehnite – Boosts prophetic abilities. Enhances visualization and spiritual “knowing,” and aids in connecting with higher realms. Helps induce lucid dreaming, while dreams are made easier to remember and nightmares are reduced. Prehnite is said to “heal the Healer,” and can be used to revitalize your personal healing environment. Put Prehnite in your garden to create a healing sanctuary for yourself. Use Prehnite with energy grids to enhance protective fields, calm, and bring inner peace. Prehnite fosters a strong sense of trust in the Universe. As such, Prehnite stops hoarding of both possessions and of love by fostering a belief in the abundance and power of the Universe to manifest whatever is needed. It clears toxins from the body and balances the meridians. It helps you say “no”. Prehnite encourages acceptance, emotional release, forgiveness, and compassion. It helps to remain true to self, uplift the spirit and find clarity of heart and mind.

 

It’s funny how when we feel emotions, we can feel them so deeply. You can barely see a different perspective because your so entrenched in it. I was having a great week earlier, feeling on top of things and getting things done. The last couple days though, I’ve been feeling stuck and not meeting my own expectations. And I’ve struggled. I’ve felt overwhelmed. I have so many things to do and things going on, and then other things happen, and it just became too much for me. Consciously, I knew it wasn’t really that big of a deal and to let it all go, and move on. Life always goes on, we learn and things pass. My ego had other plans. The anxiety and overwhelm got the best of me. I knew the only thing I could do was try to sleep it off. This morning, as I reflected on yesterday and thought about what I would like to post, I thought about the phrase, “Even the Healers need Healing”. Wouldn’t you believe, when I google Prehnite, that’s what comes up for it! In the past I would’ve been surprised, but lately I am not. I am becoming more in tune and I can feel it deeply. I have also been dreaming a lot the last couple days, so it’s no surprise to see that we really need sleep to heal and relax, and to connect to higher Source. There’s a theme here for September: relaxation and inner peace. I have such perfectionistic tendencies sometimes, I think we all do in our own particular ways, and it can be very hard to truly relax. We are being reminded to say no to some of the things on our to-do list, or to people who hold unrealistic expectations of us. There is a lot going on, and sometimes we need to remember how important it is to take care of ourselves, so we can be ready for the things we need to do. It’s probably been a busy summer. School is going to be starting too. Make sure to take time to rest this month. The Angels are here, holding and helping us. Reminding us that we can let go of fear, and that everything is going to be ok. We even have luck on our side, so constantly remind yourself how lucky you are, and you will find more and more reasons to feel that way. Let’s see how the cards guide us for this month. 

I am literally crying over these cards… they are so perfect with the message from the crystals and from my reading for this week! Of my 8 decks of cards, and 50+ cards in each deck, I was still drawn to pull the Release/Relax card! It is the same card from my reading for this current week, and it’s a reminder that sometimes we push too hard. Take a step back and take some time to rest and relax, and let go of things that are stressing you out or weighting you down. For the sake of…. peace. Inner peace. And love! I was shocked to see the peace card. It was just so perfect, and I hope throughout September, we are able to feel a genuine sense of peace. Look at the turquoise/real colors throughout. This has been a very emotional time, and we need to release those emotions, and have peace in our heart that everything is divinely perfect. Even though they do not feel that way sometimes, everything truly is just as it should be. It’s ok to cry, and is needed to release stuck emotions. There is also a theme here of letting go of the need for possessions, material possessions or relationships, having trust that the Universe will provide everything you need, without your need to worry. “Find harmony within yourself and don’t look to the outer world to provide certainty. This too, shall pass, and once again your life will be filled with beautiful music.”  Have love and compassion for yourself. Life can’t always be perfect, and there are going to be some times that are tough. By believing fearful thoughts, such as, your not good enough or loveable, you can create blocks in your life. Keep your heart open by loving yourself, and visualizing your heart surrounded by a beautiful green/teal/turquoise light, and visualizing that light emitting outward to all-that-is. Do your best to love yourself and find peace. 

Release/Relax – You were born to be passionate, and nothing can change that. However, this card reminds you to focus on channelling your emotions and opinions in positive and constructive ways, for the sake of peace. The Angels ask you to find a creative and beneficial release for your emotions so you can move on freely. For example, you can channel anger into artistic projects, or volunteering for activist work. Ask the Angels to help you express yourself and helpful, beneficial ways. Make sure you’re always fair to yourself, but be fair to those around you as well.

Peace – 

Essential Meanings: Freedom from attachment; radical acceptance.

The Oracle’s Message: It doesn’t get any better than this: a quiet mind, a heart for fulfilled, freedom from want, and the soul’s satisfaction. The way to peace is through radical acceptance. Everything in your world is exactly as it should be. Harmony is beautiful. Enjoy it.

Relationship Message: When two people are in true alignment with one another, they have an innate harmony between them. They are as two perfectly tuned instruments playing together. Sometimes it’s impossible to tell who is who. Peace is yours, and it is to be savoured.

Prosperity Message: This is one of those times when you’re capable of clear vision about your work and how you create your prosperity. Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it. You’re called by a Presence to step into your power. Just being is enough, for you are in peaceful harmony with Spirit and it shows in your work.

Protection Message: Now is a time for calmness and well-being in spite of temporary conditions. Even if there are dissonant notes in the music of your life, all that means is you must go within and fine-tune the extraordinary instrument that you are. Find harmony within yourself, and don’t look to the outer world to provide certainty. This too, shall pass, and once again your life will be filled with beautiful music. 

Love (Compassion) – In this beautiful Image, we see hands reaching toward each other through a heart. The Green field surrounding them is the color of the fourth, or heart, chakra. It’s when we feel love in our heart center that we not only naturally emit the healing energy of compassion, but we also attract love and compassion. Studies by the Heart Math Institute reveal that the electrical signals from the heart are up to 60 times stronger than the brain’s, and the magnetic field is as much as 5000 times more powerful. It’s a given that are thinking patterns affect our feelings and, in turn, our reality. What we put out, whether it’s love, fear, empathy, sadness, and so forth, contains an incredible amount of power to shape and influence our reality. When the focus of our attention and intention is love and compassion, we recognize no separation between self and other. All wounds stem from the illusion of separation from Source and all of creation. The route to healing this wound is through cultivating love and compassion for every being on this planet, including yourself. Not a bland standard of unquestioned acceptance, but a heartfelt sense of profound relatedness to whatever you perceive as apart from yourself. True compassion requires not only the feeling of warmth that emanates when you are in touch with your heart centre, but in act of kindness, even if this simply means being a fully attentive listener. Respect the fact that your heart is a giver (putting out electrical energy) and a receiver (drawing in magnetic energy). These energies are best sensed by attending to the steady flow of your breathing, while also noticing your heart area. Righteousness, fear, anger, and judgment are some common ways to block your natural desire to love. Forgiveness is not only letting go of judgment, but also seeing through the illusion, that you and all-that-is are separate. Look about you and inside of you, and do your best to love whatever you see.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Feb 14, 2016

  

Being Valentines Day and all, I was quite excited to see what the cards would say… I assumed they would be about Love and Romance.. They are more about reminding us of the love we need to have for ourselves. They are also comforting us, to let us know we are understood and appreciated, even if we don’t feel that way in our physical life. Archangel Michael helps us with our self-confidence, and will bring you a comforting sense of protection if you are feeling alone or afraid. Just ask for his help in your mind, that’s all you need to do. Self-Care is another reminder, we need to take care of ourselves. Nobody can make us truly happy but ourselves. If we get spoiled on Valentine’s Day, that’s great.. But in reality, that’s not where our happiness comes from. WE make our own selves happy everyday. You Are Understood makes me feel like something may happen this week.. Perhaps a conflict of some sort.. (If your not experiencing one already..) I feel like it’s going to bring us down a bit. We are reminded that we are understood for our actions and emotions. We are being comforted, and reminded that there is a reason we go through all this. There is a greater purpose. We have to work really hard to take care of ourselves so we can live our happiest, and most successful lives, by learning to love ourselves. It comes from within. Pray for help from Archangel Michael. He understands you, and wants to help. 

Archangel Michael – You received this card because Archangel Michael wishes to work with you and your Divine mission. He can be with everyone simultaneously, and he’s unlimited and non-denominational. He helps anyone who asks. As the giver of strength, Archangel Michael reminds you of your role on Earth. He helps you release fear and have a healthy level of self-confidence. Call upon him anytime you are afraid, and know that you are immediately protected by the Grace of Heaven. Ask Archangel Michael to guide your decisions based on your purpose, instead of fear, and rest assured that he will lead you to your highest potential. Whenever you feel alone, afraid or vulnerable, allow the power of this magnificent Angel or bring a comforting sense of protection to you. 

Self-Care – Make sure your not giving to the point of creating lack in your own life. You feel compassion for the World because of your Divine mission. As a result, you sometimes become generous to a fault. You may not see this as a problem. However, this card is telling you to be aware of your own needs in life. Make sure your doing enough for yourself so that you don’t suffer due to your generosity. Allow yourself to feel how great it feels to have your own needs met, and trust that those around you are guided by their Angels to ensure all theirs are taken care of, too. You are here on Earth to help, but you’re not everyone’s problem solver. The greatest gift you can give to others is to ask their Angels to awaken and guide them to their unique purpose. 

You Are Understood – The Angels send you this card because every aspect of your personality and existence makes perfect sense to them. You may feel flawed, or that you’ve made mistakes. This card reminds you that nothing is a mistake. Everything is a Divine appointment. Know that Heaven and the Angels see you as a perfect being, and they have been with you every step of your life. They know who you are, and they see your Divine perfection. The Angels completely understand why you’ve made every decision you have made. Allow yourself to revel in the comfort of knowing that there’s a force much bigger than any human on this planet, and this force sees you as a flawless soul doing the best you can.

2014 in Review – So proud of my blog!

I am so proud of how far my photography and blog has come this past year. I know someone is guiding me to put my work out there! Although my stats could probably be a little better, and I could probably post a little more frequently, I am still beyond proud of my work, and so proud of all the different countries where people are viewing my work from. If you want to check out my year in review, the link is below. Thanks everyone for viewing and following! Hoping to post some new reviews and photos soon!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.

1st day of blogging a success!

61 visitors to my blog on the 1st day, and tons of likes. Thank you all so incredibly much for stopping by. I have wanted to start a blog for sometime, but with the time constraints of kids and work and chores, it leaves me very little time for my photography or blogging! Something moved me yesterday and worked through me, and made me type up the 1st and 2nd blogs quickly and put them up without hesitation or embarrassment. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I am a shy person, but it feels weird just to put your real emotions out in the world for anyone to see. It’s a vulnerability that must be overcome to effect positive change and real discussions about our true issues and problems. I pushed through cleaning my kitchen and in a few hours when supper rolled around, there I was staring down a filthy kitchen once again. It is something I have tried to accept and embrace since becoming a mother, that responsibility and worries become endless once you enter the realm of motherhood, yet something is chipping away at my soul every time I have to get back to doing stuff I perhaps would prefer not to be doing. I guess it’s a balance that I am struggling to find. I can say that writing my feelings and putting them out there yesterday was also very therapeutic for me. It feels good not to care what anyone else thinks of you, and to love yourself and put your creative talents out into the world. It’s funny because I never really considered myself creative or to be particularly good at writing. It’s amazing what happens when you just sit down and try. I also feel like it is a divine guidance that gives me the inspiration and drive to actually do something. We all need to listen to our hearts closely and ask what we can do to help someone else and try to make the world a better, happier, and beautiful place to live and enjoy this crazy thing called life. I am sure one day when my child is out of the toddler phase and hopefully done with the ear infections, I will look back at my frustrations feeling I overreacted. The truth is, raising kids is hard, and we shouldn’t feel any shame for feeling emotions that have been around since human beings have existed. There is a reason we feel these emotions, and in feeling that out, and learning how to cope instead of avoid, we can hopefully mitigate the tougher years in our lives. Can’t have a rainbow without a little rain, right?
